Every month we ship you a project kit in the mail. Your first month, which will ship within 1 week upon you subscribing, you will receive the base components which all subsequent projects will be built on. This includes a baseplate, breadboard and a battery pack. Each month after the 1st, you will receive a new bag of components in the mail. Your kid will reuse the baseplate, breadboard and battery pack to build out another electronics project using our online video curriculum as a guide.
Our monthly subscription projects are built for kids aged 7 to 12, with younger kids potentially needing more adult supervision than older kids (although we've had kids as young as 5 enjoy and learn from EEME!). The age range for our stand-alone feature projects are listed per project description.
We want to make sure EEME is right for your family. You can cancel our monthly subscription at any time.
Currently we don't have a way to skip a project for a particular month. We also don't allow you to pick your next monthly project either. Because our projects and concepts builds in complexity from one month to the next, ordering is important.
It really depends on how well the siblings work together. If they collaborate well, you only need one subscription per family, as you can always take apart the project after putting it together. The point is to encourage building and rebuilding - so feel free to take your projects apart as often as you want!
Your first project will ship within 1 week upon subscribing (unless stated otherwise on the subscription page). We ship your subsequent projects 2-5 business days after the 1st of every month or the next business day thereafter if the 1st falls on a holiday or weekend.
We understand the many options available to you as a parent for what to buy for your kid. We respect your time and resources so if there is any reason you are not satisfied with our product, we will be more than happy to provide a 100% refund. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For subscriptions or purchases that ship to California, we are required by law to charge sales tax applicable for the city of Belmont in San Mateo County, CA.
While we do not service our subscription outside the US, we do ship our 9 project set (basically 9 projects from our monthly subscription in one package) internationally. Please email us at email@example.com
Everyone starts with Project Genius Light - a light that dims when it's bright out and brightens when it's dim out. This is the best project to gently introduce your kid to basic electronic concepts. From Project Genius Light we will build out this understanding with more complex projects featuring buzzers, alarm systems, and switchboards. You can preview our project curriculum by signing up here.
With an EEME project, you get:
You keep them in the baggie! Outside of the core monthly project offering, we will occasionally have side projects that will make use of components from previous projects. As your kid broadens their understanding of electronics and as their toolbox of components grow, we welcome them to create their own projects too! We'd love to see them!
Yes, the videos show you how to put your project together. We understand that paper instructions might be more convenient for some parents. But we believe following along to our video series (which includes quizzes) is the best way to ensure learning - it is more engaging, allowing concepts to be explained while your kid is building.
Nope! Parents don't need any engineering experience at all. Our video curricula assumes no engineering experience, and are designed to teach or re-teach you enough of the basics of electronics so that you can guide your kid through putting together the project.
If you would like to check the status of your order, feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
